Cheniere sees first cargo from Sabine Pass Train 2 in August

Cheniere sees first cargo from Sabine Pass Train 2 in August

Houston-based LNG player Cheniere expects first cargo from the second train at its Sabine Pass liquefaction and export plant in mid-August.

According to the company’s monthly report filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the project progress “supports the substantial completion for Trains 1 and 2 by late May 2016 and September 2016, respectively”.

Trains 3 and 4 targeted substantial completion dates are April 2017 and August 2017, respectively, with schedule recovery expected in the summer of 2016 as labor resource is transitioned from Stage 1 (Trains 1 and 2) onto Stage 2 (Trains 3 and 4).

Cheniere revealed that the Train 1 completed performance tests in April while tests continued on the second train. During April pipe pressure testing, air blows, and restoration continued while mechanical runs for the LNG compressors were completed.

Cheniere shipped the first cargo from Sabine Pass Train 1 in February while the first commercial cargo left the facility earlier this month under the 20-year offtake agreement with Shell.

Sabine Pass is the first facility of its kind to export U.S. shale gas overseas.

Cheniere is developing up to six trains, each with a production capacity of approximately 4.5 mtpa of LNG, at the Sabine Pass terminal in Louisiana, adjacent to the existing regasification facilities.
